To help extend the life of Blanco, Texas' sewage system, Real Ale Brewing Company has hired the engineering firm of Pape-Dawson to build two ponds, each 150 feet by 50 feet by 10 feet deep, will hold 510,000 gallons of effluent and a full-treatment plant that will cost around $700,000. The ponds should be finished by May 10, assuming the city permits are granted quickly, and the treatment plant should go online on June 1.
